dc.description.abstractFire could dramatically reduce strength of reinforced concrete elements and it is considered one of the major threats for the structural safety of buildings: structural members may even collapse due to intensity and duration of fire. In this study, 3D finite element simulations of reinforced concrete elements under fire loading are presented. A quasi static one-way-coupled thermo-mechanical analysis is carried out, in which a heat transfer simulation is conducted first and then internal forces are computed. A phe- nomenological constitutive model based on damage-plasticity is used for concrete at high temperature. Transient creep strains are included in the model for elevated temperature. Extended Leon model is used for yield function and isotropic damage is assumed. Numer- ical results are compared with experimental data found in the literature, showing good agreement.
